      Great progress - think this is the first car I might actually be impressed with the air set-up.

      thanks man.,

      there is a crap load of work to do and we have 10 days before we leave for Wuste.
      I think the e-level system is going on the car right now, and the engine and stuff should be ready and fired up tomorrow, make sure everything works, then put the rest of the car back together.

      i ordered a bunch of OEM engine bay junk today. grommets, clips, clamps etc.. going for a partial shaved clean OEM look.

      It does however look like the new top won't be on in time for Wuste, figuring while on display the top would be down with the bitching boot cover i got, we would clean the crap out of the existing vinyl top, black magic the hell out of it, and put it down whenever possible.

      well i finally got to go play with the car again today for the first time in a while. I didn't want to get in the way of the masterminds doing the real work, so i figured i could do some arts n crafts type stuff... like putting Rattle Trap sound deadening material in the car. now this is no small task because you need to be a master of a box cutter and a little roller wheel and the ability to cut shapes to any shape you want and not conform to anyones guidelines.

      so here's some pics




      i wasn't using the heat gun, it's beyond my skill level of equipment. it was just in the pic as a prop

      don't forget the trunk


      and a few other things i had no part of doing

      then an oil cooler popped outta nowhere

      OEM cloth tape wrap is CHERRY and awesome

      lets count the numbers

      i hope so, i figured while it was all ripped apart, why not do it.

      tomorrow the lips for the wheels will be done, i will pick them up, bring them to the shop, put the wheels together, and then hopefully bring the wheels and get the tires mounted and one the car.

      they are there just to see.
      the gotti center caps i have had the stupid Corvette logos on them and were wrapped in some kind of foil crap. I had those center caps sprayed satin black and and trying to decide what to do with them. but i do have all 4 original Gotti caps.

      that is hours worth of hard thought out, back-breaking work right there my friend.

      and i am still crossing my fingers for it to be done for Wuste, and if it isn't i am ultimately fine with that and will still have a fun time.

      as it sits right now we have
      diagnose why the spark isn't firing
      install full interior
      get tires mounted
      wet sand, buff, minor paint touch up
      install side skirts, front bumper, grill, headlights, fog lights, passenger door window regulator
      alignment
      and clear bra if i had time
      oh and also try to put a few miles on it before the trip across the desert.

      who knows what could happen in the next 4 days.
